Alphanumeric Sender ID using Twilio account API

Hey all.

 

I setup a Twilio account to send SMS authentication using the splash pages. This is all working very well.

 

However, I can't seem to configure Twilio / Meraki to use an Alphanumeric Sender ID - this is part of the Twilio API.

 

Anyone tested this?

 

Thanks

Kind of a big deal

You'll have to configure it in Twilio. It's a general setting for all SMS's sent by your account. It's not supported on the free trial though.

Alphanumeric Sender ID allows you to set your company name or brand as the Sender ID when sending one-way Text SMS messages to supported countries. Alphanumeric Sender IDs may be up to 11 characters. Accepted characters include both upper- and lower-case ASCII letters, the digits 0 through 9, and space: A-Z, a-z, 0-9.

I've tried this, but there is no way I can get Meraki to either choose the messaging service with the alphanummeric sender or specify the "from" field.

 

Can you explain how you configured this?
